    For any aspiring poets, or artists in general, I suggest reading "Letters to a Young Poet" by Rilke....it is truly great.

    And if any of you like poetry but are through with such classics as Frost and Yates, try Pablo Neruda or Octavio Paz. If you're not much of a poet and want to give that special someone a great love poem try Neruda.

    Congratulations, KingZoolerius66. I hope these bits of craporific poetry below show you that much more pathetic lives than your own continue to exist, if only to show that at least they haven't given up:

    Code:
    I've heard about Death
    I read about it in Shakespeare's MacBeth.
    
    If you want to commit suicide
    Then you've just given the game to the other side.
    
    Some say that to make a crappy rhyme
    Ought to be made into a new sort of crime.

    Soon your life will flash before you
    Your friends, your family
    They all seem to miss you
    Want you to be happy
    
    Sometimes life is sad
    You want to shout and whine
    You think everyone's bad
    Then you think how everything can be made fine
    
    Now you want a new chance
    It's easy to do
    Launch yourself, like a lance
    And love everything about you

    Yes.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I got that from another website, where I get most of them. I make some, though.

    personally, i think it blew.

    All you did was use couplets, and the content was such mainstream woe is me crap. I didn't have any truly astounding phrases in it, no imagery, nothing, just rhymed the last words of every sentence. Any idiot with a rhyming dictionary can do that.

    Don't let Eminem read this thread!
    He will use this in his new hiphop album.

    That's quite impressive, Ken old boy,
    Your poetry is such a joy.
    I've no beer left; I've checked the fridge,
    So now I'll go jump off a car park.

    Ho ho ho ho ( <-- even more seasonally adjusted laughter)
    Why, thanks, RobR, yours made me chuckle
    As you deftly missed your rhyming couple.
    But satire's done its deft deed here
    So let's all party and have a Happy New Year!

    A poetry battle twixt RobR and Ken?
    OK so let war commence then.
    I'll fight you with rythm, meter & cuts
    And if that doesn't work, a swift kick in the nuts.

    A kick in the nuts? that's a tad low
    Especially since my dull wit's a bit slow
    But if a fight's what you want then i'll pull forth my sabre
    But i'm drawing the line at tossing the caber.
